Pyrus Communis Conference Pear Tree Pyrus Communis Conference was introduced in 1885 by Thomas Francis Rivers, and it has become the most popular pear variety in the UK with good reason. It has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit and designated as Perfect for Pollinators. The Conference Pear Tree grows into a small, attractive deciduous tree, with a semi-open oval crown. In April and May, the showy clusters of fragrant, single white flowers emerge before the leaves, attracting bees and butterflies to the garden. While the fruits develop over the summer, the glossy, medium-green leaves are a pleasant note in the landscape. In early autumn, the pale green pears will be ready to pick. Long and narrow with sweet, creamy flesh, they are best harvested when under-ripe, and laid aside to ripen. They will last until January in storage.
Height and Spread of Pyrus Communis Conference The Pyrus Communis Conference fruit tree will grow to a mature height and spread of 4-8 metres in 5 to 10 years. This tree can be expected to live more than 50 years.
